The Merchant's House Museum , known formerly as the Old Merchant's House and as the Seabury Tredwell House , is the only nineteenth-century family home in New York City preserved intact — both inside and out. Built "on speculation " in 1832 by Joseph Brewster, a hatter by trade, it is located at 29 East Fourth Street , between Lafayette Street and the Bowery in Manhattan . It became a museum in 1936, founded by George Chapman, a cousin of the family who once lived there. The House was among the first 20 buildings designated in 1965 under the City's new landmarks law. It is the only historic house museum in the Greenwich Village / Soho / NoHo neighborhoods.
